Childrens hospital – JR Memorial golf tournament

We had a great tournament this year organized by Ron VanderDrift

This golf tournament held in honor of John Riddell is a tradition held in partnership with PAC – Packaging group.

In 2018 we raised $4,025 for BC Childrens hospital.  It was a honour to hand a check to this organization which does such amazing work for our sick children in BC.

We look forward to another great tournament on June 19, 2019.

Come out “Fore” some fun!

Science Expo

The PNWSCT Vancouver Section was pleased to support the “Greater Vancouver Regional Science Fair” with a $500 donation! The money is used to reward these developing scientists as they continue in their studies.

“We hope to encourage and foster an interest in the sciences.” Please consider supporting this worthy cause.
